into effect in ten days, what washington is calling the sequester. and keep in mind that plan actually originated in the obama white house but was approved by the house and the senate. in front of a sea of first responders in washington, the president today lashed out at republicans in congress saying if legislators don't come to an agreement, emergency services will take a hit. that was just one of a number of possible consequences the president listed off if the cuts are allowed to begin march 1st. he talked about fewer police and firefighters, longer airport security lines, lost jobs, criminals going free, teachers being laid off. democrats in the senate have proposed replacing the forced spending cuts with reduced defense spending and add to agriculture subsidies and more tax revenue for millionaires, but house republicans have rejected any increased taxes as solution. here's what the president had to say today about that. >> so far at least the idea is that the republicans have proposed asks nothing of the wealthiest americans or biggest corporations, so the burden is all on first

and ron brownstein, executive director at the "national journal" magazine in washington. good to see you. ron, republicans could push president obama to push further spending cuts by threatening to shut down the government in the run-up to upcoming deadlines. we've heard one leading republican senator, john sni isaacson, say it's a bad idea, but could we be headed down the road to a shutdown? >> i think we are probably not. there are certainly republicans who have talked about that, but the consensus of sentiment seems to be moving on a different path now. i think what republicans are looking at more now is taking the sequester cuts and then codifying them in, as you know, a continuing resolution to extend the government funding through the rest of the year, and in fact daring the democrats to shut down the government by refusing to accept those large cuts in both discretionary and defense spending. >> david, you have served four u.s. presidents, including three republicans -- nixon, ford, and ronald reagan -- as well as an 18-month stint as counselor to democratic president bill clinton
. they will have to wait to see if the lawmakers in washington come up with a sequestration plan. congress is on break until next monday. republicans took a shot at democrats saying the republican- controlled house already took votes and blame democrats in the senate and president obama. >> what the president failed to mention was the sequester was his idea proposed by his administration during the debt- limit negotiations in 2011. >> reporter: meanwhile, democrats say republicans want too many spending cuts in their long-term budget plan. no matter who is to blame, the department of homeland security says they could be in trouble. we could see problems with border patrol and security for starters. live in washington, kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> 7:16. california senator dianne feinstein trying to win support for her assault weapons band by circulating a list of guns that would be exempt. senator feinstein says the purpose of the exempted guns list is to make clear that this would not affect hunting and sporting weapons. her bill would ban 167 specific firearms designed for mili
into here in washington, president obama is doing an end around the national press today. he's taking questions from local tv stations, blaming congress for doing nothing to avoid these forced spending cuts scheduled to take effect in just nine days. so what kind of cuts is the president willing to take? jim acosta confronted the white house press secretary today with that question. jim is joining us now. how did it go? >> reporter: wolf, here we go again. the white house and congress move one day closer to the massive forced spending cuts that go into effect at the end of next week. and even though they both agree it's a problem, they are both busy blaming each other to fix it. the white house sounding the alarm. poor children will be tossed out of classrooms, health services will be slashed, border security will be compromised and the economy will take a hit if forced budgets cuts begin to happen on march 1st and the obama administration says republicans will be to blame. >> the pleas that the republicans are making are throw these people out of work. it's just -- it makes no sense.
jones in washington. >> reporter: while president obama played golf with tiger woods at a private club in florida, his new chief of staff defended the white house against charges it's trying to sabotage congressional efrlts to reach a deal on immigration by drafting its own bill without consulting republicans. >> we're doing exactly what we said we would do which is we'll be prepared in the event the bipartisan talks going on the hill which were very aggressively supported, if those do not work out, then we'll have an option that will be ready to put out there. >> reporter: white house says its immigration bill is a plan b. if congress doesn't act. but a draft of the bill obtained by "usa today" drew fire from republicans who support the white house. marco rubio called it half baked, seriously flawed and dead on arrival. rubio, like john mccain, is a key gop negotiator. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. this raises the question that many of us continue to wonder about. does the president really want to a result or does he want another reason to beat up republicans so he
to control health care costs, in obama care, nothing addresses these specific runaway costs in hospital billing fees. any support in washington to try and drive these costs down? >> you know, let me put this in perspective for you, and, jake, you know how that town washington works. this is in "time" magazine's special edition. according to the center for responsive politics, since 199, doctors and hospitals have spent 5 5.36 billion lobbying in washington. double of the defense industry and the oil and gas industry combined. so people make money in health care certainly have the government's ear and i might ad add they have our pockets. >> indeed. drew griffin, thanks. >>> a grisly discovery on a hotel rooftop in los angeles. a decomposing body found in a water tank where it might have been for as long as 2 1/2 weeks while hotel guests used that water. the latest on the investigation and we'll take you inside that hotel. next. ♪ come on, boy!

in washington. john, this is part after constant drum beat from the white house and his team, obama's team that if we go through the sequester, it is bad, bad, bad. >> exactly right, simon. who what the white house is doing is a steady application of pressure on republicans in congress hoping this he will accept ultimately tax increases as part of a budget deal. ray whlahood, former republicanf congress, walked into the briefing room and said you may not see the effects immediately but they will be very real and build over time. here is ray lahood. >> it will ripple across the country. cuts mean preventative maintenance and quick repair of runway equipment may not be possible which could lead to more delays. >> what you heard was a hundred small airport towers could be shut down. control towers because of lack of funding. you will see 90-minute delays. furloughs every week. visitors centers, rest rooms, garbage cans won't be serviced as efficiently as they are now. again, they are trying to build a ground swell of outrage against what will happen. put pressure on republicans. republicans s
just ten days away from washington's latest deadline for forced spending cuts, otherwise known by the distinctly unsexy and misused word, sequester. today, president obama said again something must be done. >> so these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. >> so there are two solutions. number one, lawmakers find another way to punt, ie, delay the cuts for another few months or two, actually come up with a major plan to slash the debt. number two is not going to happen. the punt, i kind of like. anyway, that won't happen. number one has a decent chance. number one has failed, too. after all, the feared forced cuts are only 2.5% of projected total federal spending. we have an economics professor at nyu and former director of the congressional budget office. at this point, are the cuts inevitable? why is the president still talking about it? >> well, we're ten days away and it seems like the republicans really don't want
, it has been one of the coldest days of the year here in washington, but it did not stop tens of thousands of people from jamming the national mall, and then marching from here right past the white house. even though president obama is away in florida, the message that they wanted to send the him is clear. they want two things. they want the environmental protection agency to establish stricter emission standards on the existing power plants and not just future plants that will be built down the line. they also want president obama to kill the extension of the keystone pipeline. that is the oil pipeline that is coming from canada and would cut through the united states and bring all of the way to the gulf coast. a lot of folks here are younger voters or younger people who say, even though the u.s. right now may be as focussed on the debt ceiling and other issues, it is time to look further down the line. >> i am only 16, and some day i hope to have my own kids, and i think that this is -- i want them to live in a world that's, you know, like environmentally safe and natural. >> keystone xl
is not the way to do business. but the idea that there's nothing to cut in washington is crazy. do you know what president obama counted as one of his budget cuts in 2011? in 2010 we did the u.s. sencens. the fact that we didn't do it again in 2011 as a $6 billion budget cut. all the president's budget cuts are wars we're not going to fight so we're not going to have to pay for them. there's a lot of elusiory smoke and mirrors in the president's cuts. these are real cuts but right now -- >> these are real cuts that will inflict wounds on ordinary american and especially the middle class. >> hold on. >> donna, it's the most painful way to teach us a lesson. >> because alex, all you're talking about is cuts. the president said put it all on the table and the republicans are saying we cannot take about raising revenues. we have a revenue as well as a spending problem and until we address both of them we are not going to find our way out of this. >> a congressional delegation has come back from cuba. donna, i know you've been to cuba. alex, you're a cuban-american. senator leahy met with raul castro

. obama just divisively won an election, determined on the minds of the americans. polls see republicans as the uncompromising party in washington so the public is likely to blame them. the republicans have more to lose politically than the re-elected obama does. a government shutdown fight might be necessary for republican lawmakers to get the need for confrontation with obama out of their systems. like what a five year old having a tantrum. okay. for member management purposes.

that washington, d.c. has a spending problem. and president obama, today he's calling for raising taxes. before we talk about raising taxes on hard-working americans, we need to address the wasteful spending that we continue to see within the federal government. this year alone, we spent $2.2 billion on free cell phones in 2013. and the list goes on and on. and yet the democrats are not recognizing we have a spending problem or the impact of out of control spending on our economy. >> i know republicans and i saw a statement from speaker boehner today, saying that raising taxes is not on the table. the revenue question has -- the revenue debate has been closed. so can you say with 100% certainty that republicans will not go along with any tax increases, even on the wealthiest americans, even on big corporations? >> we need to address the spending side of this equation. that's where the republicans believe that we can find the common ground. the sequester, these across the board cuts, drastic cuts, disproportionately impacting the military and our defense, they were president obama's idea and they c
washington, crossroads, karl rove's group, is doing the same thing. what will they do differently this time around after some of the failures of 2012? >> both groups are fascinated by the success of president obama's re-election and in general the superior effort that democrats have had in identifying voters and mobilizing those voters to turn out. so that's a similarity. where they're in conflict is the root cause. karl rove's groups think the problem, they had too many unelectable candidates, too many extreme canned dates, too many fringe candidates. the koch brothers believe the success of the republican party and the conservative movement really is coming from the grass roots, not the washington establishment. so we're going to see these two financial engines of the republican party really at otdo with each other over the next couple years. >> john, it's dan senor. >> hey, dan. >> how much is the problem that one of the challenges facing the republican party is the ability to organize on the ground, technologically but also knocking on doors. the party because of the new campaign financ

not something that is so popular in washington. we're nine days away now from the forced spending cuts that are going to take effect, and while we may be short on time, we are not short on blame. president obama for one was busy today with no less than eight local television interviews. the president, according to the white house, telling his side of the story directly to the american people, blaming republicans in this interview with wcvb boston. >> the way this arose was back in 2011, the republicans were threatening to default on the full faith and credit of the united states. and we had to avoid that. the hope was that they would use this year and a half to come up with a sensible deficit reduction package. now, we've reduced $2.5 trillion on our deficit. we've got about $1.5 trillion more to go. there's a better way to do it than this, but the key is for them to go ahead and put forward the balanced, responsible approach that will avoid these cuts. >> he wants them to put forth the approach. john boehner, meanwhile with, is the them, sort of. he made his case directly to the peopl
